Announcements / Forum Update Dec 2020
« on: December 23, 2020, 02:37:45 PM »
UA,

As you may notice we have moved away from our old vBulletin forum software to Simple Machines to better facilitate our needs as a community. I will slowly be adding and updating things on the forums as time goes by so please be patient as we go through these updates.

Due to this change you will need to reset your password so please do so ASAP. The all forum emails will come from noreply@uaclan.net they be in your spam folder in-case it does not land in your inbox.

If you had an avatar, you will need to upload a new one as I was unable to move them from the old system. Please also take the time to review your profiles and update anything that may be missing.

Announcements / TeamSpeak Server Shutting Down
« on: February 06, 2019, 10:29:27 PM »
The TeamSpeak server will be shutting down at the end of the month, due to our host going out of business. So if your still using it and haven't moved over to Discord this would be the best time make the switch.

Multiplay has hosted some incredible games on our community  servers over the past 20 years and it’s been a blast supporting an  amazing community of gamers. However, after monitoring for several  years, it’s become apparent that the market has changed significantly.  This, combined with the significant investment that would be needed to  improve legacy code, means we’ve made the difficult decision to close  our community server offering. We now pass the baton onto the studios  and will focus all of our attention on ensuring you get the best gaming  experience via official dedicated servers.


See ya there.

Announcements / Forums updated and FTB Infinity Lite now Live.
« on: November 19, 2016, 12:42:17 PM »
UA,

I'm going to keep this short, but Assassin and I have successfully brought back the Minecraft servers this week. With that said the FTB Infinity server has now been reset and is running the most current version of FTB Infinity Lite. If you had access to the last Infinity server you will still be able to join. if you don't have access please feel free to message me on Steam or find me in the Teamspeak Server.




The forums have been updated to the latest version. If you run into any problems please message me as soon as possible.


-Dragon

So it's that time again, I've switched out the servers and we have our original server back up. The map was not changed, and everything is exactly as you left it.

I have had to remove the Chair plugin due to incompatibilities with the update.

MCMMO, Lockette, Essentials & Dynmap was updated to their latest versions.

The server can always be reached with mmo.uaclan.org. No port needed its default.



Please make sure to update your game to at least 1.10.2 if you haven't done so already.


Later guys,
Dragon

[TD]I've updated the FTB server to version 2.3.5. There server should be a  little more stable as this update fixes some of the issues surrounding  the server locking up.

Please make sure your version matches before joining.[/TD]
[/TR]

Coming soon to a chunk near you.

[TD]Soon everyone on the mainland will have RF brought right to their door.   Everyone is welcome to jack into the grid and enjoy clean free RF, but  don't forget to give back or there won't be any left.

 I'll be running transmission lines out to everyone's location, doesn't  matter if you've got a starter shack or a complex. Just drop the  coordinates here or leave a note at my complex and I'll scope out a path  to your place. Now if you're off the mainland, don't worry, all you'll  need is 2 Tesseracts to send and receive RF.

 Now for those that live in or around a town or complex, we'll need to  coordinate where your substation will be built. Don't worry I can fit it  into your theme if needed, as long as it can house everything.

 RF Power stations are welcome and I'll gladly connect them to the  system. As well as RF storage systems, but remember it's always good to  use a capacitor bank at your place in case of a black out.
 
 More updates will follow as I build out my complex, which at one point  may serve as spawn for the server and a safe zone for players. If not it  will definitely be a hub that players can come and go to almost  anywhere in the world.[/TD]

See you in-game,

Announcements / November News
« on: November 12, 2015, 05:16:06 AM »
Hey guys, it's been a while since we've announced anything, so it's time to actually update everyone.

No, we are not dead, just busy. I started a new job a month ago, so I've been slightly out of it, but I'm still putting things in the works. Assassin has been working in the background, but he's not gone so don't count him out. If it wasn't for him we would not be here, or even have a place to come to in reality. Static is, as always, working hard on something new for you guys, but he'll make an announcement in the future. Mega and Trinity have been taking care of things, while I've been away for the last few weeks, as well as keeping an eye out for something new.


The Minecraft server looks down, but because we flip between FTB Infitniy and Vanilla RPG server the status banner is unable to show correct status. We will be working towards having both running 24-7 on separate ports to keep our status banners current and not misinform you. We will also be opening them up more for everyone to play on in the future. The vanilla server will have a new set of plugins running it after I've finished testing, which hasn't exactly gone well, but that's why we test things before they go live.

We've also been playing in GTA:V since launch on the PC, and we do have a crew set up on the Rockstar Social Club which you can find here. It is currently set to invite only, so you'll need someone on the crew's list to invite you. Please don't harass the current members for an invite.

TF2 is still being played by some, like Mega, so if you need a TF2 fix hit him up. I'm sure others will pop up again if enough people are playing.

There are many other games that we are in, that I haven't listed here, but I'll try to make a list of games in the future for everyone to check. Also, we're always looking for something new, so suggestions are welcome.


Mumble has mostly been unused and really was only a place holder. Trinity, Mega, a few others and I have been chatting in a server outside of Mumble since it doesn't have everything we need to operate. I've been mulling over the idea of buying a server in NYC as it is the central point between our players. We have people from many places pop in every so often so we need to consider everyone's location. We don't have people just joining from the States and Canada, we never really have since our friends come from many places. I've truly been stuck between Teamspeak and Ventrilo, but after talking with Mega, Trinity, and a few others over the past week, I think Teamspeak is our best bet. I will announce the server url and port after I've decided on a host, as they are not all created equal. We don't need that DDOS mess we had with our last host.


Last, but not least. I've finally updated our forums to the most current version available today. I know there's much to be desired, but like I've said before this all takes time. Assassin and I, when we can, will be adding things here and there, but additions to the forum are not exactly high on the priority list right now. I do plan one day changing our theme, but as of right now I still haven't found a suitable theme for us.


So Assassins, where ever you may be, it's time to truly start anew. We can and will rebuild this place to the best of our abilities. We already have an amazingly strong foundation, which I thank all of you for.


See you soon,
Dragon

Announcements / Time to start anew.
« on: February 18, 2015, 11:14:28 PM »
First things first, yes I am officially back here at UA, and I hope never to be out that long again. As for the last 2 years, it's a long story and I'll save if for another time.

Secondly, I'm grateful for this management team that not only kept the lights on, they kept in contact with me for these past 2 years. Cold, Mega, Static & Trinity thank you for all the work put in to keep UA going, we wouldn't be where we are without you. You guys kept it together like a family and that's what UA should be, a family of gamers.

It doesn't matter if you're here to just play casually or competitively. We want this to be a playground for all, and if you love it, just apply for the clan and/or invite some friends, the more the merrier.

Lastly, since the beginning of the year, I've been in Teamspeak with everyone coming up with new ideas and of course getting me back into gaming. We have been playing mostly Trove and we do have a club setup there as well as a private club world. You should check it out if you like Voxels and MMOs, not available on Steam. We've also jumped back into Firefall, and have created an army in there for UA. I reset Static's Minecraft server last month and we've been working on a few things in there, completely in survival mode. If you want access to the server please message a manager and we'll get you white listed as soon as we can.

So if anyone would like to join us in any of these games just message us or hop into Teamspeak. Like always we're open to new games that we can play together, so don't be afraid to add something new to the mix.

Now nothing is set in stone, but there will be changes made to the community over the next year. Which includes, but isn't limited to the site, our rules and the network. Don't worry we'll keep you informed whenever a change is made.


Above all I want to rebuild this community, bring it back to what it was, and have fun.

Video Games / Friends For Minecraft
« on: December 09, 2012, 11:03:58 PM »
I forgot to post this the other day, but here is an easy way to find each other when we're online.

Do you have a circle of friends you always play Minecraft with?  Maybe a  very large circle of friends?  Heck, it could just be a few friends -  one thing we all struggle with at times is coordinating a time and place  to play together, finding new and exciting servers, and communicating  with friends out-of-game.  

We've stumbled on an app recently that addresses all three of those problems - and quite a few more - it is Friends For Minecraft, and it is pretty awesome!  FriendsforMinecraft  offers a ton of features for you and your friends, to make coordinating  games, server hunts, and play-times even easier!  With FFM, you can:


  • Find out what Minecraft servers your friends are playing on
  • [/B]
  • Share Minecraft screenshots with your friends
  • [/B]
  • Find out the best Minecraft servers to play on
  • [/B]
  • Send messages to Minecraft friends no matter what server they are playing on, even if they're offline
  • [/B]
  • See when your friends are online
  • [/B]
  • Vote on the best servers, worlds and images
Even better, it isn't limited to just one app - You can use the Friends4MC iOS app stand-alone to create your own FriendsForMinecraft  account, and add your Minecraft friends; see when they are online, see  what servers they are on, and even vote and comment on the best  Minecraft images.

The FriendsForMinecraft web client lets users view all images being posted within the FriendsForMinecraft server, in real-time. Users can comment, 'Like' and share these photos within their other social networks!

If using your iPhone or a web-based client doesn't tickle your fancy,  the client is also available for PC and MAC, as a stand-alone  application.


 Keeping track of friends and servers is so easy, even a zombie could do it!
 
What could make this app seem even more awesome than it already is?  How about the price?  FrindsForMinecraft is FREE. The only way this app could be better is if it did your homework for you too!  So, what are you waiting for?  Check out FriendsForMinecraft, and discover a world of friend and game management you never thought possible!

Video Games / Fireworks and Enchanted books in Minecraft. 1.4.6
« on: December 07, 2012, 05:26:15 PM »
Even though they said there wouldn't be a snapshot this week a new one has been released. Now you have the chance to make fireworks without any mods. You can check out the effects by going here: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Firework_Rocket. For now there's no sound for the fireworks but they look good. You can not only change the effects you can have multiple colors and change the timing on the rocket before it goes off in the air. Since this is apart of the Redstone update I'm wondering if we will get launchers blocks we can hook up to Redstone circuits and make shows out of them.  

No that's not the only thing in the snapshot but we also have Enchanted books so you can easily enchant your items with an anvil. Now they can be found rarely in dungeons sometimes even unobtainable enchantments, but you can always make them by throwing them on an enchantment table.

On a final note Nether Brick slabs have been added in for people to use, I just wish they would add a way to make Nether brick.


You can get this weeks snapshot here: http://assets.minecraft.net/12w49a/minecraft.jar.

Announcements / Minecraft Server has been updated to 1.4.5.
« on: November 28, 2012, 02:11:55 AM »
After weeks of testing and plugin changes I have finally updated the server to the latest version of Minecraft. Now there are a few things that people need to be mindful of now. All drops have been set back to default Minecraft drops, so yes you will need that pickaxe with silk touch to get back your glass. With that said, please don't break the blazed spawners in the nether other people need to get blazed rods. The Nether and The End have been regenerated so by all means go kill that Dragon and bring us back the egg. Nether portals no longer work in the normally so if you want to make a portal that links to the Nether ask me or MegaSuperGeneral to link you there. Warps have been disabled for players, so please use the Minecarts to get around, and don't depend on /home or /spawn all the time. Now I have reduced the number of plugins so the server should run more smoothly for everyone in a few days, I'm rerendering the maps from scratch. Your RPG stats have not been affected and the plugin still works, you just won't get any xp for all the new 1.4 items. Like always you will notice your doors are messed up so just fix them.

Now I haven't added a new world since it would be usless right now, we already have 3 main worlds to take care of. If you want newer areas you can go walk around Ninny or Assassins world.


Happy Mining,

Video Games / SA-MP Convoy Trucking Club
« on: September 25, 2012, 09:57:27 PM »
Trinity, Lil Tankk, and I play in a server called Convoy Trucking in SA-MP. SA-MP is a multiplayer mod for GTA:San Andreas v1.0 (mod will not work with other versions) you can download the mod at http://sa-mp.com

Now I do know a few others have gone in there with us, but not everyone that has the game has played with us. If you would like to play with us just go to their site to get the ip and more info on the server.

Now the reason for this thread is to come us with a club name since we can make clubs in the server.

So far I've only come up with:

UA Trucking
Unknown Truckers
Unknown Assassins Trucking


So what I would like to know is from players that have been in the server what their ideas are. If you have an Idea please leave a link to your accounts profile page with your club name idea.


Once we can get a name and their are enough people in that server I will make an official area in the forums for the server.


on a side no if you do have GTA:SA and need to downgrade go to http://forum.sa-mp.com/showthread.php?t=41141

Announcements / UA Management and Minecraft Server News.
« on: September 08, 2012, 08:47:16 PM »
As of today ColdAssassin has stepped down as manager, after a long run since he will not have the time to manage everything with a new job on the way. Now this doesn't mean he will be gone he will still be administrating the servers and working on small projects when he does has time.


Now for months we have been looking at others to add to the Management position, but only one has fit the bill so far. Now it's not easy to find new managers since we look for people who are willing to help others, always willing to learn new things, as well as being around on a daily basis. So without further ado I would like to announce that MegaSuperGeneral will be taking Assassin seat as Manager of UA.


As for Minecraft news ColdAssassin and Hannah (playados149) have made a world that will be added to the main Minecraft server tonight. Now it will still be a survival world, but it was generated in Minecraft 1.3 so it will be easier to find more 1.3 generations then you would in the main world and Ninnys. So the server will be going down just after midnight eastern time tonight to add the new world and generate the map for the world that they have given us.  



As always happy gaming,
UA Staff

After a week of testing I can finally say the RPG server has been updated to the latest server so everyone can update their clients to the newest version.

With that said there are a few new things on the server.

Players can have multiple homes 5 max. To set more homes all you need to do is /sethome [name]. After you have added multiple homes you can see the list when you do /home, this also means when you want to go home you will need to type in which one you want to go to. Also the last bed you have been in will take up a slot and will be your default spawn after death.

The portal to Ninnys world no longer works, but you can still get their via a warp sign in the portal shack near spawn. Just right click the sign and you will be sent to Ninnys world free of charge.

Jungle Trees now drop the correct sapling so the tree farm will be filled with jungle trees on the lower level.

Trees no longer have gravity enabled, so if you have a tall tree don't leave the rest of the tree floating in mid air cut it down. Now if you use the Tree Feller ability it will knock down the whole thing.

Cocoa farm will be added to the farm in Central City on the lowest level.

Chat colors are as follows:
White for new players.
Gold for players with build rights.
Orange for administrators.

You will notice that the MOTD has changed. It shows the amount of cash you have, any mail you might have, and also the time in the current world your in.

I would advise everyone to check out /rules and /info when you have time. More info will be added to the lists when it becomes available.

You can also request to teleport to other players just type in /tpa and the name of the player you want to go to. They will accept or deny your request.

The economy system will not be in use just yet, but once I make a proper price list you will be able to buy and sell items and blocks. This doesn't mean you can't trade with villagers since it will not interfere with them.

You will also be able to chat once again with the people who are viewing the map on the website.


The build server has been shutdown indefinitely, but it may show up again on the RPG server as part of another update which may also include a pvp world in the future. As promised though I have uploaded the world files from the build server just over 303MB download. Build.7z (You will need 7zip or WinRar to open it.)


I am still trying to update the Texture pack to 1.3, but the site I use to customize it seems to be having a problem putting the pack together. As soon as they fix the problem on their end I will update the DokuCraft pack we use for the server.


Happy Mining,

Computers and Electronics / NICT Daedalus Cyber Attack Alert System
« on: June 23, 2012, 06:38:31 PM »
I saw this today and felt like its the 90's all over again, but this time it's real. Leave it to the Japanese to make something like this. With this software you can monitor your networks for cyber attacks.

[video=youtube;3u5u5A8_SE0]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3u5u5A8_SE0[/video]

First thing I thought was Ghost in a Shell when watching this. Some even think about the movie Hackers, I can see why, but what do you guys think.

[TF2] UA MarioKart 24-7 / Mic Spamming issue discussion.
« on: June 22, 2012, 01:56:44 PM »
This thread is not to rage on how you or someone else has been mic spamming or muted. I don't want to see walls of text about anything I want to see a civilized discussion on the matter.

Now I know people can mute you client side, but at times it's not enough since you won't be able to talk over them since most of the time you wont even know that they are spamming.

I also understand that people can lag because of the mic spam as well, some people have it worse then others. Now if an admin sees that it mean that it could be a problem for others. Assassin and I wouldn't notice this since we has a ton of bandwidth, but other with ADSL, DSL, or cable will notice it a lot since they won't have the bandwidth to support the game and the audio streams. Personally I would rather have some type of Shoutcast stream for the server that people can control on their client to avoid this problem all together.

Another thing I think we should look into is what's spammed on the mic. I know not everyone will be happy with what is spammed by one person, but maybe we can get to some middle ground on what should be spammed.


This is not a discussion on who can and can't mic spam since it is a whole nother matter.

(If anyone has something relevant to the discussion that was said in one of the other threads by all means quote it here.)

They have also received invites to the Firefall Beta.

Congratulations to our winners.

Announcements / RPG server updates and fixes.
« on: April 28, 2012, 12:55:41 AM »
I have updated the renderings for the world maps with our DokuCraft pack as well as the Day/Night cycle. Now with that said I've removed The End from the maps since the End is no longer a valid place to build since once a month it will be deleted so others can get a Dragon Egg. I will be Building a Museum in central for the people that get an egg each time, this means that the same group of people can't get a new egg for 3 Months. Now the last thing you will notice about the world maps is that the cave views are no longer there, since then can be used to find peoples hidden rooms.


I've fixed the problem with sheep not regrowing wool. Now this does come with a drawback since I've had to disable block protection on Endermen, so if there is a block missing on your house you know why.


On a final note the UA Hunger Games will be held next Saturday at 8pm EDT. I will post a port for you to join an hour before the event. Now if you would like to record the event please pm me your MC name so I can give you special rights to record the players easier. Now this doesn't mean players in the games can't record the game from their view. If you do make a recording please make it available to the editor of the video, speaking of which I need someone to take care of editing the video before we can upload it to the clan's channel.


Happy Mining

Announcements / Minecraft Servers have been updated.
« on: April 14, 2012, 03:30:38 AM »
I have just finished updated the last of the plugins needed to keep the servers going. What does this mean for you as a player, you'll have all your commands back that's right you can do /home, /spawn, /warp again.

In the RPG server you can lock your brewing stands so that people don't steal your potions while your away, as well as iron blocks, enchanntment tables, jukeboxes. When you die you don't loose your experience or level anymore, so don't worry when you die with a high level. The log gravity is back so don't worry about climbing into the large jungle trees to cut them down. If you haven't already checkout the mcMMO wiki for updated information you can find it at: http://mcmmo.wikia.com/wiki/McMMO_Wiki.

If you haven't noticed yet the servers don't need Spoutcraft anymore.

The new UA DokuCraft pack is avalable for 1.2.
